by October 7, 2016 General

Zh. Meldeshov noted that the regions plan to provide the fellows on the “state employees” category with the possibility of an alternative 3-year job placement in the region to develop human, technical and managerial capacity of regions and stimulate incentives of involvement of alumni of the program.

“The need for this measure is due to the fact that the majority of skilled government managers, trained by the” Bolashak “program remain to work in the center. We believe that by replacing mandatory five-year work obligations with a 3 year will provide the rotation of civil servants trained under the “Bolashak” program from the major cities to the regions?” Zh. Meldeshov said speaking at the 3rd annual Bolashak Alumni Reunion Conference and Education Fair 2016.

In addition, President of the Center for International Programs noted the new model of language training “6 + 6”, providing a six-month training at the centers of Astana and Almaty and the subsequent six-month training in the language centers in the UK.

“Currently, the total number of students is 60 fellows. 173 fellows, who have finished the school, last year, entered the university abroad. We plan to open schools in all regions and transit to a full course of language training in Kazakhstan,” said Zh. Meldeshov.

It should be reminded that Astana hosts the 3rd annual Bolashak Alumni Reunion Conference and Education Fair 2016 (BARCEF-2016).

Kazakhstani and foreign participants of the conference, which is held on the example of NAFSA Annual Conference and Expo, discuss the main trends in the development of global education within the 25th anniversary of Kazakhstan’s Independence.
